Fed readies another hike as inflation, bank sector concerns weigh on decision

The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates by another 25 basis points on March 22 as it looks for ways to both fight persistently high inflation and mitigate the fallout from recent bank failures.

But even as a small increase is likely at the next meeting, the central bank's path forward has never been more uncertain since it began hiking rates a year ago.

The Fed has boosted the benchmark federal funds rate by 450 basis points since March 2022. Just two weeks ago, many forecasters believed it would accelerate its efforts and hike by 50 basis points as inflation remained well above its 2% target and the labor market refused to cool. Recent bank failures have changed all of that, causing some to suggest that the rate-setting Federal Open Market Committee may pause its rate hike plans or even cut rates in the near future to calm markets.
